The Warde Mustangs (16-4 overall, 13-3 in the FCIAC) defeated the #6 Ridgefield Tigers 38-33 on Saturday afternoon in the quarterfinals.
In their quarterfinal win, senior captain Olivia Parisi posted a double-double with 22 points, 12 rebounds, as well as five assists. The Mustangs were able to advance back to the semifinals where, last year they fell to Trumbull 36-34 in triple overtime. Warde is also playing without senior captain Libby McKenna who is out with an injury she suffered on Jan. 25 in its 56-46 loss to Staples. Coach Dave Danko has had his young talent step up this season with strong minutes but will rely on his experienced upperclassmen to punch a ticket to the finals.
The Wilton Warriors (16-4 overall, 13-3 in the FCIAC) defeated the #7 Staples Wreckers in the quarterfinals, 57-53 on Saturday afternoon at the Zeoli Field House.
The Warriors were able to hold off the Wreckers thanks to three starters finishing in double figures. Caroline Sweeney led the team with 14 points, Lauren Robertson had 12 points, and Claire Gulbin finished with 11 points. Wilton, a strong shooting team, also showcased its speed up and down the floor with fast-break points and team defense. The win on Saturday extended the Warriors’ win streak to five games. Head coach Rob Coloney has coached this senior class since they were in middle school and will look to share more memories by bringing home a conference championship.
Frank Granito and Kevin Coleman will be on the call.
